Kaspar Bennett and Brussels SC dominate in Cardiff

Brussels SC, winner of the team event (Gil Delogne, Rudi Knuf, Laurent Coucke, Frédéric Vanton, Cédric Vanton, Philippe Hipfinger)
The Cardiff grand prix was played last week-end in a great spirit and a fantastic field of 93 players from 13 nations taking part. The Open tournament was full of surprises but at the end one of the big favorites managed to lift the trophy as Kaspar Bennett (England) beat the young Angelo Borg (Malta) in the final. Paulo Gouveia from Portugal and Romain Lafontaine from France were the semi-finalists. In the other categories, David Vantassel (Belgium) won the U19 event. Vantassel's teamate Emilie Despretz won both the U15 and the ladies sections while Kye Arnold beat Thomas Price in the U12 final. In the veterans, the event was very open. Despite the presence of four excellent Maltese players in the last 8, the inner was Laurent Coucke from Belgium. Coucke wins his first ever title in the veterans category.

On sunday, the team event was also very open with 16 teams taking part. Bristol SC (England) and Brussels SC (Belgium) were in the same group but met again in the final. After a very close game, Brussels won by one goal to win their first ever FISTF trophy. Well done to tall the inners and to the Cardiff organizers for a great tournament.
